I'm currently fully booked through to January 2018, but please don't hesitate to drop me an email now to start discussing your project requirements.
My time can be booked several months advance so it can help to contact me early. If I'm unable to help, I may be able to point you in the direction of somebody who can.
Generally, my time is charged at a fixed daily rate or at a fixed cost per iteration if that makes sense for your project. I don't usually work on fixed-price contracts - this doesn't often fit well the agile, iterative development style in which I work - however I am sometimes able to accommodate this requirement for shorter-term projects and consultancy work with tightly defined scope.
Clients will sometimes ask me to work on-site. Generally speaking, my services are performed from my own office with on-site attendance only where necessary. The nature of my work means its not usually necessary for me to be physically on-site except during the early planning stages of a project or for certain meetings. If a client does require me to work part-time on-site I am happy to discuss this however I do charge a higher rate for on-site work to cover my additional costs, except for within the first week - I am always happy to work on-site in the planning stages of a project at my standard rate.
Contracts and non-disclosure
All contracts will be between you the client and my company, LJR Software Ltd, a VAT registered company. All prices will be quoted excluding VAT and VAT will be charged where appropriate, depending on your location.
I have a standard Master Services Agreement that all of my clients sign - I can provide you with a copy of this on request.
Please be aware that I do not sign non-disclosure agreements up front. Any discussions prior to any contracts being exchanged will be in the strictest confidence. My standard Master Services Agreement contains confidentiality clauses and I will also be happy to sign your own NDA in addition to this if you prefer, once we've agreed to work together.
Agencies and recruiters
If you're a recruitment agency, please be aware that I do not usually accept roles through agents. You are welcome to get in touch with me if you feel you have a specific role that might be suitable to my skills, but any general emails or enquiries into my general availability for roles will be ignored. Please do not add my contact details to your mailing list or candidate database without my prior permission.
Please also note that I am not currently looking for a permanent role; please do not contact me about these.
